* Pig Squeal * Shoppers Redemption Event!

Hello!

I have been waiting for a Shoppers redemption event for awhile since I missed the last one this past December and my wishlist has been growing like a hungry tapeworm ever since! This particular event was for $200 of cosmetics for redeeming 80 000 points when you normally get $170 worth of product for 95 000 points so it was a pretty snazzy deal. I even had a list that was colour-coded and prioritzed according to need/want. The sales girl at the Beauty Boutique thought I was charmingly neurotic.

One thing I really wanted to try was Lancome Teint Miracle foundation, but that didn't end up working out because I needed TWO different shades to make one shade of Jayne and there was no way I was spending $100 on foundation that I would have to mix every morning! Instead I decided to try Stila's Illuminating Liquid Foundation in the shade 30 watts which matched me perfectly and was nice and smooth-looking on my face.

This purchase of Prada Candy was solely due to the MyScent sampler pack from Loose Button's January Luxe Box so this right here is an example of these sample boxes achieving their purpose! Love the scent. It's light and sweet and has become my go-to perfume for now.

This is the Lancome 5 Pan Palette in Emerald Boudoir which I fell in love with because of that gorgeous green right there! It's not too bright, but shimmery which I love. I see myself using this palette through the year with the green being a nice pop of colour when I need it. I should do a EOTD with this!

This is Lancome La Laque Fever in the shade Spot Pink. It's a happy pink with silver glitter in it. I have a LLF in a nude shade which I love because the coverage is so nice. I've mentioned before that I always wear lipstick + gloss because I like having some colour left once the gloss wears off, but with these guys, I don't need that safety lipstick layer. The deterrent for me getting more of these is the $31 price tag, but that's what these redemption days are for! Indulging a little bit!

This was a last minute addition because the friend that I went shopping with said that this mascara "changed her life" right when I was at the till to pay. Yeah, how can I say no to a magical mascara? This is Benefit's They're Real mascara and if you see the picture below on my naked Asian eye, the eye without this mascara looks almost droopy even though they're even! This mascara lengthened and even lifted my lashes sky-high! I didn't curl my lashes, I just let this baby do all of the work! It's pretty crazy how well it worked! Must buy for anyone who wants a great mascara!

So, there it is! I loved everything I picked up and I had a really fun time at the Beauty Boutique with my friend because we were the only ones there on a Monday night and had the sales girl all to ourselves! Then we had a girls night out with some food and played with everything we purchased! It was just such a nice way to start the week with some good company and product. Until the next redemption event (sometime in the summer, I think?)!

  3. Haha, I've also fallen in love with a perfume I got in a subscription box (I think it was my one and only Luxe Box). I'm usually not big on more floral perfumes, as so many of them smell old-lady-ish to me, but this one is beautiful!

    Awesome haul! :)
